Take the Traveller Quiz Super, Natural British Columbia

Winter seems like a far-away dream and if you haven’t already, you might want to consider reaching deep into your closet and taking out your favourite pair of shorts, because it’s time to come out and enjoy the sunshine.

The sun is out, the flowers are out, the people are out…Vancouver Island is starting to show its true colours: people are flocking to the beach, to the lake, trekking up the mountain-side, and participating in the many awesome events and festivals.

In this edition of Island Moments, we share the amazing and the fabulous, the things that make Vancouver Islanders proud. We invite you to explore all our coastline has to offer, and to revel in what you love.

These nations have been stewards of the area for thousands of years: the oldest known site of human habitation on Vancouver Island (circa 5850 BCE) was located in Bear Cove within the District of Port Hardy.
